'''The Sisters Of Mercy''' are an English gothic rock band that formed in 1979, when Duran Duran guitarist [[Andrew Taylor]] grew bored of standing around looking like a girl in expensive promo videos and decided instead to study Manderin oranges at Leeds University. Changing his name to '''[[Yvonne Eldritch]]''' he teamed up with guitarist Harpo Marx, bass guitarist and author Douglas Adams, Pirate castaway from Treasure island Benn Gunn and a Doctor playing drum machines.The band named themselves after an obscure song by Leonard Rossiter. Together they embarked on an unremarkable early career.
'''The Sisters Of Mercy''' are an English gothic rock band that formed in 1979 by Andrew Eldritch instead of his career as a translator of Mandarin Chinese, which was his Major at Community College of Southern Leeds. It is considered by most Critics that "Doktor Avalanche" is the best musician in the groups history. Considering it was a Drum Machine this brought Andrew into deeper depression, further delaying any future album. The band named themselves after a Concerto by Leonardo Cohen, (The Dude with the really bad, deep baritone voice that made "music" apparently in the 70's that wrote "Hallelujah") .

Ok so His Name is Really Andrew but were going to call him Yvonne Later in the Mythology after this one. The "Real" story of them is quite intriguing. They were not a "Real" band so to speak when ''Floodland''(the groups most successful album to date.) came out and Andrew refused to tour. Consumed with his Greed, Self Loathing, and his incurable Love for Former Bandmate Ogra Morrison, & not touring after ''Floodland'' (the groups most successful album to date.) was among many issues which led to the downfall, and inevitable dissolution of The Sisters of Mercy. His inability to obtain a Record Contract with a Major Label and Eldritch's Unwillingness to sign Independently or release anything Independently, has in turn "Doomed" any chance for release of a future Sisters of Mercy Studio Album.

Most people stopped caring, so Yvonne went to Germany, married a princess and lived happily ever after. Apart from when he gets a tax bill and has to drag himself off to do a tour every few years.

After Ogra Left Eldritch, he began a downward spiral, binging on ''Nutella'' and Failure. The Sisters of Mercy Have Not Released an Album since ''Floodland.''
